econullnetr: Null Model Analysis for Ecological Networks

Tools for using null models to analyse ecological networks (e.g. food webs, flower-visitation networks, seed-dispersal networks) and detect resource preferences or non-random interactions among network nodes. Tools are provided to run null models, test for and plot preferences, plot and analyse bipartite networks, and export null model results in a form compatible with other network analysis packages. The underlying null model was developed by Agusti et al. (2003) <doi:10.1046/j.1365-294X.2003.02014.x> and the full application to ecological networks by Vaughan et al. (2017) econullnetr: an R package using null models to analyse the structure of ecological networks and identify resource selection. Methods in Ecology & Evolution, in press.
